Personal Information: 
Key Largo, FL, USA

I spent most of my career as a newspaper executive in the second-largest media group in the United States. In 2003, I discovered coaching, took my training, got my certification and opened my own business -- all after 5 months of coaching. I am a true poster child for the power and effectiveness of coaching!

A few years later, I took the job as CEO for the Key Largo (Fla.) Chamber of Commerce. It was a fabulous run for nearly seven years, but in 2012 I made another midlife transition to focus on my own business and my lifelong passion -- helping business and professional women succeed.

  • I work with career professional women to help them develop the skill sets they need to demonstrate their value and ask for what they want.  Many of these women are embarking on "encore" careers and need assistance with goal-setting and accountability. 
  • Many of my coaching clients are also entrepreneurs, either brand new or those who have been in business for a while. I share my experiences as a start-up and help them overcome some of the biggest challenges they face. 
  • A growing subset of my clientele is women in midlife and mid-career transition. These are women who have been recently widowed or divorced, downsized, fired or replaced by younger, less-experienced and cheaper employees. They seriously doubt their capabilities and have no idea what comes next. 

Regardless of where they are in their career or life, I help women get their mojo back through personalized coaching that focuses on what they need the most to help them recognize their value and worth.
